Heatkiller Dual-Link Setup Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am getting ready to put my (soon to be) 2x560 ti's under water. Since I went ahead a got 2 full cover Heatkiller GPU blocks, I went ahead and ordered the appropriate Heatkiller Dual-Link SLI attachment. I have a quick question, though.

I know this SLI attachment is supposed to work using paralell flow, which is what I want, but is there a certain way I am supposed to hook it up. What I mean is there are 4 openings on the Dual-Link, do I connect them on the same side (where both the inlet and outlet are right next to each other), opposite sides (where the inlet and outlet are opposite each other but lined up in a straight line), or diagonally from each other (where the inlet and outlet are on opposite sides and not in line with each other). To clarify, here are some diagrams:

---> [ ] Same Side
<--- [ ]


---> [ ] ---> Opposite Side
[ ]


---> [ ] Diagonally
[ ] --->

Edit: the spaces got messed up, but I hope you get the idea!!!

Unfortunately, there is no documentation that came with it, and I cannot find any documentation on the internet regarding the flow pattern inside of the Dual-Link. My gut feeling is to use the diagonally example thinking that the water goes straight across the block, then through both cards, then out the other side of the block. However, I am uncertain. If you have used the Dual-Link or know where there is some documentation, I would appreciate some info. Thanks everyone.

Did you get the bridge for two slots in between?


To answer your question, since all HK bridges are parallal, you just select the opposite side. For example, my tri sli setup water came in on the right-bottom port and exited the top-left port. You can choose either top or bottom, what ever is covenient for your loop just make sure water flows in one side and exits the other side. Btw, I made this little guide, hope it helps

Yes, I got the two slot one (61mm between graphics card slots), measured it before I bought it. Eveything else comes in on Monday - second 560 ti, both GPU blocks. Question is whether I spend Tuesday morning playing BF3 or working on my computer . . .
